If you want to make decisions about yourself and your child, you have this right. * No. Pregnancy or having a child does not automatically confer emancipation upon the minor. The legal age of majority for the state is 18. As noted in the previous response, a pregnant minor has the same rights as does a pregnant adult when the issue concerns making decisions about her pregnancy or her child.
